Mizuno Wave Sayonaya 2 GIVEAWAY


Good morning!

My only running option the majority of the time is the treadmill early in the morning now that our stroller days are over. The boys and I can tackle some trails and hikes, but the furthest we’ve ever made it is 2 miles and that took a very long time. Ha.

Today the hubs is off and I jumped at the chance to get outside for a quick run.

2014-08-28 06.21.17

I ran six easy miles as the sun came up and they were glorious.


I’m currently sipping on this smoothie to hold me over until breakfast.


Here’s what I threw in the Nutribullet- 1 cup Silk unsweetened almond milk, 1/4 cup leftover cold coffee, a scoop of Vega sport vanilla protein powder, some frozen blueberries, frozen pomegranate arils, spinach and crushed ice.

I know, a random mix of things, but smoothies are always like that aren’t they? It’s actually really delicious.


Last night I put this ginormous Elephant garlic from Frieda’s to good use by slicing it really thin and roasting it with a bunch of veggies.

2014-08-27 18.44.52

My dinner didn’t turn out to be anything exciting, but the other night I mad a couple multi grain goat cheese, salmon and jalapeño spread pizzas that were delightful.


I’ll save snack chat for the next post and tell you more about these Quest Bar gems.



Right now, it’s more important to tell you that if you haven’t registered for Rock ‘n’ Roll Los Angeles 1/2 Marathon on October 26th yet, you can now get $20 off with MAMAROCKSLA. Pretty cool huh? It’s a costume run friends!



It’s also much important to give away a pair of my favorite shoes.


Oh heck yes.

Mizuno Wave Sayonaras and my racing and treadmill running shoes. I just love them. The new Wave Sayonara 2 just came out last month. I wrote a full review on them here and ran my first marathon in them at the San Francisco Marathon 2014 last month and the half marathon a couple weeks ago.

2014-08-17 06.45.37

Let’s just say they are darn fabulous.


Let’s also say they’ve already had their fair share of sweaty miles put on them.

2014-08-21 10.18.21


Mizuno has a pair of these with one lucky reader’s name all over them.

    I wear the same shoes for running outside, on the treadmill, and racing. I absolutely love my Mizunos and wouldn’t trade them for any other shoe!

    Sarah L says:

    I rotate through shoes in my training and have shoes for speed days that I also use for racing, but I don’t have a specific treadmill or race-only pair of shoes. Would absolutely love to try out these Sayonara 2s!

  3. 3
    Ramona S says:

    Usually try and run on the treadmill with my “treadmill” shoes and run on the road with my regular running shoes.

    Christian says:

    I wear the same on both treadmill and outside, but I have a specific pair for speed training and races (Wave Hitogamis).

    But right now I’m having some issues because I switched to a pair of Newton Gravity’s. Despite trying to transition to them slowly nothing beats my Sayonaras (which are now too old to run in)…so I guess it’s safe to say I’m in need of a new pair. Would LOVE to get these!

  5. 5
    Gabe F says:

    I have one pair of shoes for long runs and one light pair for speed work/tempos

  6. 6
    Victoria says:

    I use one type of shoes for treadmill/outside running and another for trail running. (but I rotate!)

  7. 7
    Jen B says:

    Is it bad that I spend more on running clothes and shoes than work and life clothes and shoes? :) I always try to have two active pair that I’m rotating through and one “wear around pair” that I attempt to keep clean and looking nice.

  8. 8

    I usually stick with the same pair for financial reasons but that isn’t to say I wouldn’t love having a pair specifically for my outdoor runs and another for treadmill running :) .

  9. 9
    Amy says:

    I’ve been waiting to get these! Seriously wanting the new ones as my original sayonaras are DONE! But waiting till money is a little better. A free pair would be awesome!

    Kelsey M. says:

    I have one pair for running anywhere, and then I have a ‘walking shoe’ for everything else! They are too expensive to buy more than one pair! Someday :)

    Leeanne says:

    Looking forward to trying to these out. I trained for my first marathon in the Sayonaras and ran my second marathon in the Hitogamis. Love Mizuno!

    Jeffrey says:

    My favorite shoe is the Elixir but once I use up my stock pile I have to find a replacement. I use them for everything, they are great for training and any race distance. Not sure why they cut them from production but it sure does sadden me!

  15. 15
    Mansi M says:

    I have the same pair for both indoors and outdoors, but when I buy new ones, will keep my old ones just for the treadmill!

    Danielle Gardner says:

    I definitely wear different shoes. When I lift and do HIIT I love my reebok nanos because they are flat and I like the feel of them for that type of workout. When I run I wear my brooks(need to retire those babies). I am doing the Rock N Roll 1/2 marathon in New Orleans in January. It will be my second half marathon. Looking forward to it!

  21. 21

    Usually just stick to one type! Sometimes I use a lighter pair for race days.

      Oh, and I have 4 pairs of Mizunos that I rotate depending on the type of run, whether it’s speedwork, long run, recovery or iffy weather.

  24. 24
    Sarah says:

    Mizuno’s are my favorite :) I haven’t been able to get new shoes for a year now, but luckily I have 3 old pairs I rotate through. I usually use the same ones for treadmill & outside. I soooo want to try their new trail shoes, too!!

  25. 25
    Hannah says:

    I only have one pair of shoes, but I would love to be able to rotate between pairs to make them last longer!

    I dont currently, but i should use different shoes for indoors vs outdoors!!

  33. 33

    I have a different pair of shoes for every activity — running, track workouts, crossfit, other cross training, tooling around town…they all require a specific pair of shoes in my book!

  37. 37
    Kourtney says:

    There is so ridiculous much good in this post! Your food creativity and deliciousness never ceases to amaze me. I wish I could throw all that together every day!

    I do have different shoes for different purposes…I live in my Sayonaras for anything short and fast, and races up to 10k. I switch into my Wave Riders for anything easy and races 1/2 marathon and above. Would love to get my toes into the Sayonara 2 :)

  38. 38
    Holly B says:

    EEek! I love these shoes. I have a trail half on Labor Day and after that I will have officially worn out my running shoes. I would love these as a replacement.

    Sheryl B says:

    I’m a Mizuno girl all the way! I LOVE Mizuno! I’m currently running in my Wave Rider 16′s (used those for my first half last spring). For 5k’s and the treadmill I will run in my Precision 13′s. I would love to add another pair of Mizunos to my “stash” as I do rotate my shoes so they don’t all wear out at once. The colors and styles of Mizunos are just fantastic! I entered and am really hoping I win! I’ve heard great things about the Wave Sayonara 2′s :) Thanks!

  68. 68
    Nikki says:

    I like to switch up my shoes so I’m not always running in the same pair but I don’t use a specific pair for running outside or on the treadmill. Maybe if I did more trail running I would wear different shoes for that. Those Mizunos look amazing!!

    I wear trail and road shoes, but I need new trail shoes, yesterday I wore my road shoes off road and my feet were not happy.

    same pair

  71. 71
    Mary Hauser says:

    I use the same shoes–but if I was independently wealthy and could afford all the shoes in the world I would have a different pair for treadmill and outside.

  72. 72
    Kristin M says:

    LOVE these shoes….but haven’t bought a new pair in awhile. A new job and being a single mom has forced me to be a treadmill runner 75% of the time, however you are a great motivator with this and I know a new pair of shoes would do the same!!!

  73. 73
    Amanda S. says:

    Love, love, love my Mizunos! I wear them only on the treadmill (which is almost always where I train) and when I run outside I’ll grab another pair. I would love to take a pair of Mizunos outside with me!

    Kate says:

    Unless I’m trail running, I just wear the same shoes.

    All different shoes with lighter racing shoes and clean shoes for the treadmill. Don’t want the stones and dirt on the treadmill and wish others would do the same (at the gym).

  82. 82
    Judy Westacott says:

    I bought my 2nd pair of Mizuno runners earlier this year and can’t rave enough about their comfort. Absolutely love them. I have different runners depending on short runs, long runs, trail runs, or doing the Grouse Grind. I am extremely hard on my trail runners and they wear even faster if I don’t. Comfortable footwear is ultra important to me!

  83. 83

    I don’t run on the treadmill, but I do have lighter shoes that I use for speed work and racing.

  84. 84
    Sandy says:

    I stick with one pair of shoes for everything!

    Amy Lauren says:

    I don’t really run on the treadmill, but if I did I would wear my Wave Hitogami or my Wave Elixirs. I train in the Elixirs most of the time and I heard these shoes replace those so I would love to win them and try them out. Going to read your review as well. I went to Dick’s Sporting to try these on and they don’t have them yet!

    Those shoes are awesome!

  92. 92

    I have only owned one pair of Mizunos (usually Nikeys are my go-to shoes), but they carried me across the finish line of my first 26.2 last year! LOVED them! I have several pairs of shoes I rotate through, depending on the distance. My “old” shoes are my ‘mill shoes (because I do not go very far on the device LOL).

    I’m a creature of habit so I definitely stick with the same shoes for everything!

    Right now I have 2 pairs that I switch back and forth with, but now that I have my first 1/2 marathon under my belt (yahoo!!) I’d like to get more serious about gear and shoes. Would love to try Mizunos!

  101. 101
    Kelsey R. says:

    I usually rotate between two pairs of shoes: one pair for easy runs and one pair for speed work. I don’t have a preference for one over the other when it comes to the treadmill vs. roads…I guess it depends on the type of run I want to do.

  102. 102
    carri arrieta says:

    I wear the same shoes for running on the road and running trails….I can’t stomach the treadmill, I just store my running stuff in it

  103. 103

    I wear the same shoes no matter where I am running…and they are very sad looking indeed! I was just thinking today that I needed a new pait!

  104. 104
    Katie says:

    I love these shoes, I would be so excited for a pair.

  105. 105

    I stick with the same pairs of shoes for all my running- mostly because I haven’t found anything else that works! I love the Wave Inspires so it would be awesome to try the Sayonaras for races :)

  106. 106

    I have a pair for running and a gym pair that gets some elliptical work, but if I treadmill I generally use the running pair. I wouldnt mind doing separate and can easily see having some advantages to that method.

  107. 107
    Denise says:

    I wear the same shoes for all my runs – no matter where I manage to get the run in. And, you can always use a new pair of running shoes! :)

    Kristin A says:

    Love the bright colors. Do you know know if they give good support? I typcally wear New Balance.

  119. 119
    Emily says:

    So I never really thought about switching out shoes for different terrain. I do rotate and use different shoes for lifting. I would really like learn more about how you rotate your shoes. How do you determine which shoes you wear? I’d like to potentially integrate a rotation into my current training schedule.

  120. 120
    Ashlee says:

    I typically switch out shoes depending on the distance. Ones that have more mileage are for shorter runs, ones that have just come out of the box are for longer runs :) All are Mizuno!!

    Kaitlin says:

    I use lighter shoes foe races and the treadmill, currently I’m still racing in my elixirs but they are almost ready to be retired! I’ve been really looking into the Sayonaya!!

  125. 125

    I usually wear the same shoes for everything! Cross training, on the other hand, requires careful shoe choice!

  126. 126
    Danielle says:

    I have a pair for running and a pair for cross training

  127. 127
    Kara says:

    I have two pairs of Mizunos (2 different colors of the same shoe!!) that I switch between depending if I am working out/running inside or outside. I am a huge fan of Mizuno and would LOVE to try the Sayonaras!!

  128. 128
    Kim says:

    I wear different shoes all the time – I don’t want to get bored:)

  129. 129
    Laura says:

    I rotate two shoes (same model and brand) and try to wear the older ones if it’s muddy etc and keep the others for the treadmill– however I don’t hardly run on the treadmill so they don’t get used much!

  130. 130
    Catherine says:

    I would love to try some Mizunos!

  131. 131
    natasha says:

    I stick with the same ones though I have a pair or two that I sometimes just wear to take a break but usually just for long walks.

    I’ve heard it’s good to switch up all kinds of shoes to work different muscles….I like my clogs to give my calves some relief too (:

  132. 132
    Stacey Niedzwiecki says:

    I have one pair of shoes I use for the gym and treadmill, and two pairs used for outside. One regular running sneakers and another for rainy days.

    Kelli says:

    I have SO many pairs of shoes. One old pair of shoes for hiking/getting dirty, one pair for the gym (non treadmill gym stuff), one pair for the treadmill, one pair for long distance runs outdoors, and one pair for short distances outdoors! Whew!

  141. 141
    court says:

    Yes I wear different shoes for the treadmill and outside, as well as trail shoes on trails, and switch out shoes for speedwork/distance too!

  142. 142

    I like to switch it up, especially for the trails.

  143. 143

    I tend to wear the same pair… I’d love a lighter pair for speed/racing!

  144. 144
    Lisa says:

    Haylie says:

    Dude I’m hoping to run the LA 1/2! See you there! It’s my first one, and I juuust decided to do it ’cause it’s before my 17th birthday. Those Wave Sayonara 2s seem pretty sweet! I like the pink ones ;)

  146. 146
    Danielle says:

    I collect tennis shoes like most girls collect heels. Different pair for lifting, sprints, long runs, sprints, cross training, and cute everyday ones. :)

  147. 147
    Kristin P. says:

    I wear the same shoes outside and on the treadmill. I only do so because I can’t afford two pairs of running shoes. If I won these Mizuno’s that would def. change!

  148. 148

    Mizunos!!! My favourite, I have heard such great things about these ones too.

  149. 149

    I just use my same pair of Reeboks, but maybe as I progress and do more running that will change!

  150. 150
    Hilary says:

    I use the same shoes! I have tried to switch it up but end up loving my usual pair !

  155. 155
    Katie M says:

    I currently wear one pair for everything. But with a new pair of Mizunos, I could switch things up :)

  156. 156
    Jessica S says:

    I currently wear my Mizuno Wave Rider 16s for everything…BUT they are in desperate need of being replaced!

  157. 157
    sue says:

    i know i should rotate my shoes but when i find one i like, it’s hard for me to not want to wear them for everything!

  158. 158
    Jen Lyle says:

    I only wear 1 pair of shoes, but I’m thinking of getting 2 for running and 1 for taking classes. Also, I love those neon green shoes! So fun for summer!!

  159. 159

    I rotate shoes a lot… I have a slight addiction ;)

  161. 161
    Stacie M. says:

    Looking to try a new Mizuno model…maybe this is my chance!

  162. 162
    Ellie says:

    I just use the same pair of shoes for everything mostly!! I don’t run outside a lot so I really only wear them to the gym.

  163. 163
    Leah H. says:

    I stick to my Inspires for running and I have Nikes for Cross-training which I love!

  164. 164
    Aimie C says:

    Once I find a pair of shoes that feel good, I stick with them for both treadmill and outside runs. I feel like my feet get used to the way the shoe fits and it feels weird to wear something different. I would love to win these shoes…they look awesome!

  165. 165
    Tina says:

    Different sneakers for running and running errands

  166. 166
    Michelle says:

    I would love to try the Sayonaras. I wore the Wave Rider 15.

    I live for new Mizuno shoes! One of the things that keeps me motivated to run :)

  168. 168
    Anastasia says:

    I wear a one pair for racing and one for everyday running. One can never have too many pairs of running shoes.

  169. 169
    Maria L says:

    I normally run in Asics, but I have been totally intrigued to try Mizuno since reading your blog!

  170. 170
    Laura says:

    I love Mizuno, am currently wearing Waveriders. I usually wear the same shoes for everything, though sometimes I wear an older pair on the treadmill if my regular shoes are dirty (we live on a dirt road).

  171. 171
    Gerard says:

    I’ve got shoes for the road, shoes for the trail, and a pair of Mizuno Wave Universe 4 for my occasional race.

  172. 172

    I only run outside so I only have one pair of shoes.

  173. 173
    Elisabeth T says:

    I stick with the pair I like for running on any surface, but use different kicks in the gym!

  174. 174
    Jordan says:

    I switch up my sneakers for different types of exercise. Gym work with weights are my less supportive sneakers, kettle bell class requires sneakers with a stronger tread/grip, and lightweight sneakers for other gym classes. Other than that I do yoga, so no sneakers needed there!

  175. 175
    Christine says:

    I use different shoes. I want to switch to Mizuno, but haven’t yet.

  176. 176
    Kristy H. says:

    Ashley Brandin says:

    I would LOVE some mizunos to finally try!

  182. 182
    Lesley says:

    I like to rotate between a couple pairs of shoes but don’t pick a certain one for a certain place. I have been usually with brooks glycerine and saucony triumph lately but have also ran in asics. I tried on the Mizuno wave runner once as well as Hokas and would like to sometime try them out in my rotation. I do have specific trail shoes for trails and gravel roads.

  183. 183
    Amy says:

    I have a pair of shoes for just running, and another pair for other workouts!

  184. 184
    Heather says:

    i wear altras on long runs and saucony kinvara for shorter distances/speed work!

  185. 185

    I have different shoes for different runs.

  186. 186
    Kristen M says:

    For now I have one pair. I recently read a good argument for having various styles. Giving me something to think about.

  187. 187
    Alissa says:

    I’m rotating between two Sayonara 1′s.. A women’s pair for short runs, the men’s pair for longer runs since I have wide feett! Would love the upgrade to the 2′s,

  188. 188
    Stacey says:

    I have one pair of running shoes – Asics Cumulus. I’ve been wearing this brand /style of shoe for at least 15 years….

  192. 192
    Katie G says:

    I just have one pair for running in general (both treadmill and outdoors), and those are Mizunos! Love them so much. I wear a different pair for non-running workouts like strength training and bootcamp classes.

  193. 193
    Sarah says:

    My first pair of running were/are Mizuno. I was so psyched when the guy at the running store suggested them because of how much Kristin praised Mizuno. I now sing those same praises :-)

  194. 194
    Karen says:

    I love Mizunos, if you haven’t tried the Hitogamis I would recommend them. But yes, I rotate shoes between the treadmill and outside and track : depends on the workout

  195. 195

    I love mizuno and I”m desperately in need of a new pair!!!

  196. 196
    Angie says:

    I have the wave inspires so I would love to try these!

  197. 197
    Laura says:

    I currently wear 3 different models- one for speed/races/shorter runs, one with more support for longer runs, and one for trails :-)

  198. 198

    I wear different shoes for shorter runs and more supportive shoes for longer runs. I love Mizunos! The Wave Elixirs were my first running shoe and will always have a place in my heart.

  199. 199
    Jessica B says:

    I currently have two pairs. One for trails and one for everything else.

  200. 200
    Lori says:

    I wear the same shoe no matter where I run, but I keep my old pair handy for trail runs and wet days.

  201. 201
    Mel says:

    I wear the same shoes, only because at the moment I’ve been mostly running on the treadmill due to the weather! (we are in winter).

  202. 202
    Sammi says:

    I wear the same pair every run…can’t afford more than one LOL

  203. 203
    Kris H says:

    I usually switch between 2 pairs to try and keep things even :)

  204. 204
    Kelly Jo says:

    I would like to be able to switch them up, but I only have one pair of Mizunos and they are the Elixirs! This would be perfect!!!

  205. 205
    Michelle P. says:

    I wear the same shoes for everything but I am super prone to stress fractures (darn it!) so I change out my shoes every 150-200 miles, otherwise My bones start cracking. Thanks for the give-away! New shoes = AWESOME!

  206. 206
    Amber R. says:

    Hey Kristen!!! I wear the same shoes for practice runs and races. I wear my retired race shoes for strength training. I need to try something new b/c the minimalist shoe isn’t enough support but my current Mizuno shoes are too much. These would be perfect!!!!!!!!!

  207. 207
    julie says:

    I switch it up when I run, all Mizunos but I switch between the Wave Inspires and the Wave Riders. But I test ran in these last week and LOVED them but couldn’t afford them! Mizunos are awesome!

  208. 208

  211. 211
    Sally says:

    I have two pairs that I try to rotate, but 95% of my runs are outside. I am not a fan of the treadmill, just feel so much better outside!

  212. 212
    Shaunna says:

    I dont’ have designated running shoes at all. I need them!

  213. 213

  214. 214

    I usually wear the same shoes for inside and out. I’m would love to win a new pair as mine are getting to the end of their miles.

  215. 215
    Emily says:

    I would love to try these shoes!! i always get scared of the commitment cost though :(

    I wish you could try a shoe and then if it gives you blisters you could send it back and then they could donate them to people in need!! companies could even set up a system so people couldn’t abuse it!!

  216. 216
    Becca says:

    Just one pair for me! Love my Mizunos!

  217. 217

  218. 218
    Angie Jerde says:

    I’m not a big runner but I do try to use different shoes for exercising (classes/jazzercise) then what I wear for work. I am on my feet all day in the nursing field so switching up shoes is important for me. I would love to try these…thanks for the giveaway!

  219. 219

    I used to keep the same show but now I have some trail trails and road shoes and I love switching it up!

  220. 220
    Meredith says:

    I usually wear my “new” shoes inside just because i don’t want to get them all dirty haha! then they rotate to the outdoor/everyday shoes.. but i find i like a supportive shoe for everything i’m doing whether running, cross training, etc! I loved my wave inspire 9s but they have certainly seen their better days!

  221. 221
    Shawnie W. says:

    I usually wear the same show for all running (outdoor, indoor, treadmill). I have always wanted to try Mizuno shoes…I hope I win! :)

  222. 222
    Kristen says:

    When I get new sneakers I try to only use them on the treadmill or dry sidewalks for as long as I can to keep them looking nice. I’ll wear the old ones for trails or muddy/rainy conditions. This time the support in my old ones was so worn out that I didn’t have much choice.

  223. 223
    stephanie says:

    I have 2 pair of Mizuno’s and 1 pair of nike’s that i rotate for all workouts. It really depends on what shoe looks better with my outfit that day. :)

  224. 224
    Angela says:

    I have alternate between my four pairs of Mizuno’s for treadmill and elliptical work. Mostly just because they get sweaty:)

  225. 225
    Carolyn C says:

    I rotate through the 3 pairs of shoes I have. I don’t have any specifically for treadmill, I just use whatever ones I’m feeling for that day. I have been looking for a replacement for my beloved Elixirs since they have been discontinued and would love to give these a shot for training for my first marathon in November.

  226. 226

  229. 229
    Sarah Bauman says:

    I wear the same pair of shoes and tend to stick with the same shoe when I buy new ones. I am looking to try something different.

  230. 230
    Allyssa says:

    I only run outside, so I have no clean treadmill shoes! I like to use the same shoes for everything and rotate between several pairs based on where I’m running and how far I’m going to go.

  231. 231
    Donna K. says:

    I prefer to wear trail runnin shoes when running on uneven surfaces on trails. I fell they give so much more support and stability.

  232. 232
    Tracy says:

    I use the same pair of shoes for all of my running!

  233. 233
    Jessica says:

  239. 239
    Tara K says:

    I wear the same shoes for all my runs, but I’m desperately seeking a new one since Mizuno retired my beloved Wave Elixirs!

  240. 240
    Tami Rogers says:

    I love Mizunos!! I desperately need a new pair. Right now I have the Wave Inspire 9. They need retired. Sad day for sure.

  241. 241
    Krystal Holmstrom says:

    I wear the same shoes wherever I run, but I really should have a few pairs and use one for treadmill, road and then for races…mine are pretty best up! :-/

  242. 242

    I only have 1 pair. I will be getting another pair soon, but they are pretty pricey! Winning a pair would be wonderful! :)

  247. 247
    Cindy says:

    I try to keep one pair of running shoes only for running in outside. When I do my cross training indoors, I wear different shoes (older running shoes as well). Thank you so much for this opportunity. I love the look of the Sayonaras and have heard many wonderful things about the shoe.

  248. 248

    Erin in IA says:

    Iwould love to win a pair of mizunos.

  251. 251
    Brandie says:

    I wear the same shoes for training and races, mostly because I need to save money. I am a PT that harps on my pts about shoes and not wearing the heck out of them. I, obviously, don’t practice what I preach!

  252. 252
    Bobbie says:

    I run in the same pair of shoes both indoor and outdoor. I will wear my old running shoes for exercise other than running b/c they are usually still in decent shape but just done for running.

  253. 253

  257. 257
    Stephanie Gibbons says:

    Love love LOVE Mizuno gear. I’m on my fourth pair of shoes and can’t ever see me ever shopping for a different brand ever again. They work great and comfy for all workouts.. I don’t run anymore but I’m a GGX class junkie. I take a class a day (sometimes 2) and Mizunos have never failed me. Love you blog too, by the way. I look forward to reading it every day and enjoy all your creative healthified recipes. :)

  259. 259
    Tina G says:

    I get dizzy running on the dreadmill. Also no gym membership so none of that. I have to go outside rain anow or shine. I rotate a couple runners at all times. super cushy more traditional for those days when my feet are sad and light faster ones for shorter runs – to tell myself haha you are fast. Even tho I am not. But i enjoy my running jedi mind tricks.

  269. 269
    Erin says:

    I wear different shoe for the TM and racing too. I find I don’t need as much cushion on the TM or on race day. I have been liking Mizuno Wave Evo Cursoris for short races. I would love to try the Sayonara 2!

  270. 270

  277. 277
    Dulcy says:

    I usually were my mizunos….actually till I get another pr it’s the only one in inventory…I ran the soles off my last pair…hahaha!

  278. 278

    I rotate my shoes for sure, though it usually depends more on the distance I am running rather than the surface I’m running on.

    Jennifer says:

    I have some Brooks Transcend that I use for treadmill and outdoor paved path running. I have a pair of Mizuno Wave Hayate that I got for like $60 during a awesome sale at Dicks Sporting Goods.

  282. 282
    stephanie says:

    Mizzuno’s are the greatest. I have 4 pairs and wear them depending on what I’m wearing to workout that day. Mizzuno’s have never failed me no matter what kind of work out i’m doing.

  283. 283
    Luna says:

    I never run on the TM (I don’t have one and don’t belong to a gym) so that leaves races and road…but I always use the same shoes!!
